    AAIIEE – folly

    $9.00$9.99
    Folly is a pure and delicious Pacific Northwest gumbo, with an eclectic offerings ranging from barn-recorded smash-rockers like “Keep Clam” (a tribute to “Old Seattle” icon Ivar Haglund) to the dreamy psyche-jazz-prog of the epic, wandering title tune. However, there is no song stranger than the opener “The Sportsman” a psychotic angling tale with a monster fish inside a grain silo. Not now. Not ever. So beautiful.
  • AAIIEE - See You In Seattle
    Top 10 of 2012! – See You in Seattle “This record is ridiculous. Where else you gonna find a song about The Bubbleator I ask?” - Tom Dyer Green Monkey Records (before I ever knew them) “See You In Seattle represents Seattle as much as Jimi Hendrix, Heart, The Thrown-Ups, and the Edgewater Inn do” This Is Book’s Music “Musically, it’s all over the map (in a good way), with special recommendations for fans of The Butthole Surfers, Dead Kennedys, Devo, and Camper Van Beethovan. In fact, any of these acts could do wonders with the wonderfully giddy ‘Gayway’, a wink-and-a-nod to the Fair’s midway …” Jeff Penczak – The Terrascope.
  • Jeff Kelly: This song is not about violence. “Kill the Power” is a phrase, like “cut (or kill) the lights,” and is stated in a theatrical sense - almost a pun, upon these troubled times.  The Green Pajamas do not condone violence. Although this song is certainly angry - damn angry, to be truthful - ultimately - it is about talking back the power by way of organized, peaceful protest and, perhaps more importantly, all of us acknowledging - and taking back - the facts.
  • Tom Dyer - Songs To Annoy Small Children
    Songs To Annoy Small Children is the latest bit of nonsense from the indefatigable Tom Dyer. This project began life in 1995 without a long-range plan. These were simple, made-up songs to be sung to his long-suffering children. The first was Bathtub Plug, an ode to a replacement plug in a claw foot bathtub. There were five songs total. Three were recorded, including the embarrassing Dyer Family Song.  In December 2016, Dyer decided to complete the song cycle and recorded, in two days, the final two (including the masterpiece There’s A Great Glowing Gasbag In The Sky, It’s Called The Sun) plus a new concluding composition, They’re Old. To add depth and muscle to this remarkable and irreverent artifact, two additional works are being presented herein. First, are the Pirate Songs of Cap’n Kat and the SS Mediocrity. Recorded in 2005 at the zenith of the Johnny Depp pirate mania, these songs a) reflect on health issues encountered by knaves on the high seas and b) inventory the means needed for career success. The songs were composed and performed by Kat and Ben Dyer, who have most recently released material as The Dyer Spawn on GMR’s 2016 Xmas album. Second, we have five songs by Susan Dyer, composed for and performed as part of the pantomime Aladdin & His Magic Lamp in 2002. This cast recording exists because Tom was on the East Coast and could not attend the play. He retained audio engineers to do a live studio recording of the entire performance. These were Ms. Dyer’s first featured compositions; she doubles as a performer in the role of Queen Dragona.

    This is one of my very favorite Pajamas records ever. It made me remember why I love music. td "With its Art Tatum shuffle, ghostly imagery and Middle East-meets-Middle England vibe, it's as fleeting and special as a dream about the most magical hippie summer you never had." One of the "Top 10 neglected American classics"  - Tom Cox, The Guardian Unlimited **** "...gorgeously written and orchestrated..."  - Nitsuh Abebe, All Music Guide "...an album of...breadth and visionary beauty...a perfect amalgam of all the best elements of Green Pajamas' music, and to a few of us at least the band have no equal. By that measure this album is a masterpiece."  - Ptolemaic Terrascope 24 Beautifully recorded and particularly nice with an early evening rainstorm." - Popwatch #9  
  • "The moodiness, the use of acoustic guitars, piano, and the delicate vocals drench the songs in shadow like a weeping willow from one of Oates' stories." - Mason Jones, www.dustedmagaziine.com
    "The CD is terrific... The music is haunting and mysterious, and very beautifully executed." - Joyce Carol Oates
    "With strong tunes and a theme that unifies but doesn't overwhelm the music, HAUNTED is as good as...any music released in 2005." - Michael Toland, High Bias **** "...recommended listening for those who'd like to check out music that acknowledges the dark side of life..." - Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide 
  • "You'd think after nearly twenty years and a dozen mostly superlative releases the Green Pajamas would be content to just crank out consistently excellent records, but no: with Northern Gothic they've hit a new peak."  - Michael Toland, High Bias "'Lost Girls Song' is a spooky, heartbreaking piece.  In fact, I found the entire record thematically engaging, with lovely and, yes, haunting melodies." - Andrew Pyper, author of the novel "Lost Girls" "This is a shoe-in for my top of 2002 list, and I can't recommend it enough." - Brian Faulkner, Aural Innovations

    A couple boxes of the out-of-print 2009 vinyl LP on the Camera Obscura label came our way - get one while they last! "...simply another batch of superb songs: the pop nuggets "Valerie Rose" and "Watching Jaime Dance," the brooding beauty "The Mystery," the naked plea "Please Come Home," the folk-rock confection "Lady of Spain." Great stuff." - Michael Toland, Trouser Press From the Camera Obscura website... Much along the lines of the earlier Narcotic Kisses compilation, Hidden Minutes is a compilation of odds'n'sods that seemed to beg to be brought together into neat package for fans of Jeff Kelly's fertile song-writing imagination and psych-pop recording stylings. Various singles that had been made available on the internet only needed a place on the "permanent record." So here you have it, a virtual cornucopia of tracks that in an ideal world would be spinning out of your car radio in classic 7" fashion.

  • “Post – Election Day Blues” was written by Joe the day after the 2016 US election and recorded that night. By the next day Joe had put a video of the song on Facebook and was garnering attention from the like-minded. Joe has something to say and he is saying it now. Post-Election Day Blues written and performed by Joe Ross November 9, 2016  
  • Burnseer album cover

    Burnseer – Self-titled

    $9.00$9.99
    Burnseer is an American rock band based in the Pacific Northwest. Burnseer is Frankie G, - guitar and singing – formerly of Rocket Surgery with Jack Endino, Norman Scott on the drums (Skin Yard, Gruntruck, Capping Day) and bassist Eric Norberg. Burnseer is a band that has mass and density. It is Dinosaur Jr vs. The Ramones for 15 rounds. What you may not expect is the NYC pop sensibility that Frankie brings to the band. It is as if PJ Harvey and Patti Smith had a love child. In addition to the core band, the mighty Fastbacks guitarist Kurt Bloch provided additional notes to several songs. Good notes!
